As a multi-cultural Christian outreach and community centre, The Lighthouse demonstrates God's love by offering unconditional hospitality, by sharing our resources, and by helping people in need.
We offer an atmosphere of respect, dignity, and security in order to address spiritual. emotional, and physical needs, all in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
About The Lighthouse
The Lighthouse has been active in the inner city of Toronto for over 40 years. The Lighthouse’s focus is on refugees and immigrants, the disadvantaged, low-income individuals and families at high risk in the Hispanic, Chinese, and Vietnamese communities residing in the Greater Toronto Area. Many of our clients have suffered political, emotional and physical abuse and persecution in their homeland, lost family and possessions, or been subjected to violent and traumatic events. Our clients carry these difficulties together with the challenges of trying to settle into a new country. At The Lighthouse we offer individual and family counselling in our clients’ first languages, and our Hispanic Coordinator has also been trained in trauma counselling. The Lighthouse assists its clients by providing different settlement services, life-skills training and education – such as ESL classes, a haircutting course, cooking and nutrition classes – and summer children’s programs.
